Disinfection with Hydrogen Peroxide
The disinfection and antimicrobial properties of hydrogen peroxide have been known for many years due to its efficacy and manipulation safety . This compound is effective against a variety of biological contaminants found in the indoor environment, including vegetative bacteria and bacterial spores, fungi , and viruses , decomposes into the innocuous end products water and molecular oxygen. Disinfectant agents affect the microorganism´ s viability and survival by attacking their different structures. The cytotoxic effect exerted by hydrogen peroxide on microorganisms depends on the cell characteristics, its physiological state, extension of time of exposure, environmental conditions and employed H2O2 concentration.
We are using Cxt (Concentration x time) Values to Estimated Decontamination Times with help of computational fluid dinamics (CFD) model to predict H2O2 concentration at any location.
The use of hydrogen peroxide for odor elimination and disinfection is a very efficient process without the introduction of chemicals into the environment. Depending on the application, we use a "cold" or "warm" fogging process as well as water.
Hydrogen Peroxide formulations are advertised as being “non-toxic” and “non-corrosive” at use-dilution. “Corrosive” as a term can relate either to the effect on the human eye or skin tissue, or on metal surfaces.
A procedure stabilizing the unsteady hydrogen peroxide with silver, functioning as a 'stabilizer and activator' at the same time. . Silver Hydrogen Peroxide finds a wide range of disinfecting applications in fields of agriculture, food and beverage, hospitals and other institutions, etc.
Hydrogen peroxide can be used for the sterilization of various surfaces, including surgical tools and may be deployed as a vapour for room sterilization. Hydrogen peroxide demonstrates broad spectrum efficacy against viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and bacterial spores. In general, greater activity is seen against Gram - positive than Gram -negative bacteria.The presence of catalase or other peroxidases in these organisms can increase tolerance in the presence of lower concentrations. In that caseg higher concentrations of Hydrogen peroxide and longer contact times are required for sporicidal activity.
